About a year ago we officially reached the “stepped on a LEGO” stage of parenting. It didn’t take long for the occasional LEGO here and there throughout the house to turn into our house overflowing with LEGO.
So I made this as much for me as I did for you. How do you organize your LEGO?

This mom made a whole LEGO wall. I love that everything stays easily accessible in the buckets, but still off the floor.
This Ikea LEGO organization hack is brilliant, especially if you have multiple kids all with their own stash of LEGO, it keeps them all separate but still only in one area of the house.
Shannon is serious about LEGO organization! She has made great labels to help kids know where to put things in their storage slots and even has great ideas about how to keep the instructions organized so they can rebuild old favorite designs. She even has ideas for LEGO displays that your kids will love!
This mom has 7 tricks for organizing LEGO, from keeping them in shallow, stackable bins for easy searching to hiding them away in pretty boxes so your house doesn’t end up looking like a LEGO store.
If you have limited space in your house your child’s growing LEGO collection can easily start getting in the way! See this moms storage and organization tips for small spaces.
This mom skipped the toy store organization tools, and went straight to the hardware store and got nail/screw organizers to attach to her son’s walls. It’s brilliant because it WORKS! See how she did it here.
This mom has more hardware store LEGO organization ideas, but she even went so far as to organize them for easy travel and big buckets for keeping them stored at home. I love her idea to use the toolbox for travel!
So far we only have one master LEGO builder living in our house, but as soon as our daughter catches on to the craze I know I’ll be needing these tips for keeping LEGO organized by sibling.
I give major props to this mom for keeping LEGO organized by set! We gave up on that long ago, but her tips actually make it seem doable. She also has great ideas for under-bed storage space as well.
My son constantly takes his masterpieces apart to build new ones, but if you have a child who wants their creations on display, these organization ideas for LEGO creations can really help!
These parents brainstormed together and dad created a custom DIY LEGO organization center. They also have smart ideas for organizing the instructions that also end up all of the house (but aren’t quite as painful to step on).
This mom makes great use of space in her home by creating a LEGO storage solution using a stool. They can sit on it while they play and use it to reach higher shelves when they aren’t playing as well. Lots of LEGO fits inside!
Take an average bucket and make it an adorably LEGO decorated bucket to store hundreds (maybe thousands?) of LEGO inside!
My son has had some trouble choosing the best way to sort his LEGO bricks, this post has 3 methods for LEGO sorting and she helps you choose which will work best for your kids!
You can follow this simple tutorial for making your own LEGO instruction binder. I’m amazed at how gorgeous and neat this keeps them (ours are all shoved in a box).
I love this idea for decorating with LEGO. She uses the mini figurines in a frame above her child’s LEGO building area. It looks awesome!
This post has great LEGO organization ideas, but I’m especially excited about her free printables to use on the LEGO storage bins so the kids know exactly what goes where. These will come in handy!
Not only does this mom give you ideas for storage, but she also made a LEGO table for the kids and it is epic!
